This is a trippy one.
Santana, Quan, and other Oakland officials have all stated their opposition to federal control of OPD, and plan to oppose a receivership motion by civil rights attorneys John Burris and Jim Chanin in US District Judge Thelton Henderson’s courtroom this December. One of the pieces of evidence the city will be fighting against is the Frazier Report.
When the report was released in June, there was already evidence that Oakland officials had attempted to sugarcoat its findings by adding their own “progress charts” to Frazier’s evaluation (see “Damning Report of OPD,” 6/20/12). However, Frazier told the Express at the time that he had no hand in creating the progress reports and had no way of verifying whether they were accurate.
